Bob was gifted with being able to share the Disney magic with everyone who listened to him. My thoughts are with his family and friends. I will miss him very much.

Like everyone else I am sitting here in tears and shock. I was selfishly looking for the podcast when I saw the news. My prayers go out to his family my heart is breaking for them

Bob's passing will be a great loss. He was the scapegoat of many jokes, but he always was a great sport about it. I have a friend just like this that I care very much about. I cannot imagine the pain that everyone close to him must be feeling considering how upsetting this is for people that only knew him through the weekly podcast. I hope everyone the best. He will be missed.

Our heartfelt prayers go to Diana, Brian, and Bob's DIS family. A friend once told me you don't get over losing someone like Bob, you just get used to missing them.

I had so been looking forward to meeting Bob at the podcast meet this weekend. I work within sight of a place he worked at before moving to Orlando. I'm sure we would have had a good time talking about the changes that are occurring in the area since he left. And he might have enjoyed talking to somebody that didn't think he had an accent. :-)

I had just finished listening to last week's email show yesterday. Its so hard to realize that we won't hear from him again.

I hope the rest of the podcast crew, and Bob's family, can find strength in the fact that he was so well loved by the listeners.

Words fail me...

We are truly stunned. Bob, we'll miss you! Dianer and Brian you are being well thought of.

Podcast team- Please take care of each other through this time ( I'd come take care of you if I could).

We were truly lucky to get to meet Bob and Dianer at Christmas. It makes that memory even more special now.

This is not what I imagined my first post on the boards would be. I'm a lurker on the Boards and a Dis Unplugged addict since last Fall. It's been a tough year, and the podcast crew has brought laughter and joy into my life.

I, like so many others here, was abo****ely shocked to read the Boards this morning. Bob was so young, so real, and so tender-hearted. His enthusiasm for Disney and care for people always reminded me so much of my dad. I just listened to last week's email show last night at the gym, so it seemed as though Bob had just been here, making the loss somehow more shocking and harder to bear. It is heart-breaking to lose him, and I have shed many tears today for this man I never met and his family and friends.

My sympathy and prayers go out to Diana, Brian, the podcast crew, and everyone much closer to Bob than I was.
